    That wasn't entirely his fault. We didn't know you guys arrived and thought you were meeting us at Quaker Steak.

      As I recall cpw posted he would be there by 6:00 PM. He made it a few minutes early but unfortunately it was just in time to see the bus leave the hotel. I'm sure it was not intentional but I'm sure it was a disappointing end to a long drive.

        I was searching the forum to find out what the heck a Round Up is and I guess this answers it. I was thinking rodeo, but all those SoCals at a rodeo....naaah Where is this thing held anyway?

          All that really matters is that he was not left on purpose. He did post asking for the address of the restaurant and that threw us off.

              I know that we weren't left on purpose. Steve did apologize profusely. I wasn't really upset about it. You guys didn't know when I would be pulling into the hotel, because I didn't myself. The PA State Troopers can take the blame.

                like tossing bean bags into a hole/ cornhole is.

                don't know about you, but driving lags are a very common occurrence for both seismic strapping and hangers.

                did we all forget the surprise event on the first day

                hand cutting 6 pieces of 1'' steel pipe and using 3 different electric hand threaders and oilers to thread them.

                you guys let a guy wearing a silk shirt and khakis beat you up

                by the way, i didn't get dirty

                so all though it wasn't on the official list of roundup games. it was the most time consuming and physically demanding of them all

                heck, even charlie was my #1 fan

                  I didn't win any event but had a great time trying them all. There were alot of machines I have never used, and I think like most of the others, I was making a shopping list. I did turn in some respectable scores, even did the pipe threading in about 1 1/2 minutes. That one really wore me out, I'm glad I don't have to do that on a daily basis. If I'm not mistaken, I may be the oldest participant and I had a fun time trying.

                      The funny part is a couple of years ago he couldn't even figure out how to turn a computer on and Joey had to post all of his pictures. Now today he is teaching.

                        The funny part is when she showed us her toes she explained how as a child she could lock her feet together because of her toes. At first it was just for climbing palm trees to harvest dates. However, she went on to explain how today she uses them for climbing ropes and poles and the like. Then for whatever reason she suddenly clammed up and would not show the late comers to the evening gathering her toes. It was almost like she was embarrassed all of a sudden. I figure you should never be embarrassed of your talents regardless of how freakish they may be.

                          mark, you know joey is very tied up today with work. but she will be reading this and i'm pretty sure your "tramp stamp" will be the next topic of disucssion

                            I hope Joey is not embarrassed about it, that is actually cool that she can climb a palm tree. I couldn't do that with an escalator. I want you to know Joey that I was not laughing at you but more of what Mark called it that made me laugh. I feel like this is one of those moments that I need to shut up........

                            Rick & Joey you guys are awesome.
